Industrial, urban and worker identity transitions in Nuremberg


"The Nuremberg region is one of the important economic centres in southern Germany. This chapter considers its transformations in relation to urban areas, economic and social structures and with reference to broader developments in Germany. Significant restructuring and change, typical of industrial shifts in the older manufacturing areas of southern Germany, can be observed in all of Nuremberg's industrial quarters and neighbourhoods, the biggest of which are located in the south and west of the City. The Südstadt (the area between the main railway line to the north and the railway shunting yard to the south) of Nuremberg, the city's old industrial core, is an area of major transformation with many structural problems. In this chapter we consider these transitions an different interconnected levels, beginning with Germany as a whole and considering ways of understanding these changes and then moving to City level and to the regeneration experiences of living and working in the Südstadt."
